Natural Resources  Madam Speaker, as the member knows, just last week we released our 2030 emissions reduction plan.

Natural Resources  Madam Speaker, I want to thank the member for Sherwood Park—Fort Saskatchewan for raising this very timely issue, one that obviously relates to the Putin regime's unprovoked assault on its neighbour. I do not think words can capture the tragedy that has befallen Ukraine or the t

Emergencies Act  Mr. Speaker, it is unfortunate, but I have heard so many members of Parliament express support for this protest and I find it very disturbing. This is radicalism. These are people who have not shown respect for other Canadians or for the cities that they have occupied. They have
